Recommended Friday Show: Real Estate, Kurt Vile, and Big Troubles at Le Poisson Rouge

This show is a no-brainer.  I’m pretty sure that Real Estate is the artist I blog about most, and I’m pretty sure it’s getting kind of boring.  Still, this one-two-three punch of a show is not to be missed, especially because it’s taking place at Le Poisson Rouge.  That’s a nice change of pace for […]

Recommended Weekend Shows: The Holiday Breakdown (plus four great MP3s)

Of course the one weekend when I decide I’m going to take a break from indie-rockdom and get out of this city is the weekend that someone decides to pack every sweet band into all at once.  Doesn’t it always seem to work that way?  If your 4th of July plans aren’t taking you away […]

Recommended Friday Show: Kurt Vile, Girls, and Real Estate at Monster Island Basement

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSN6bI_n8s8&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0x234900&color2=0x4e9e00] This is the kind of show that you go to so that in six months when all these bands are huge, you can say that you saw them in that tiny venue in Brooklyn six months ago.  Of course, in a night that’s full of good music all over this city, social capital isn’t […]
